Waste service strike

The waste service strike is now over and we have restarted service from 27 September 2023.

Over the next few weeks, our waste service team and private waste contractors will catch up on missed collections and street cleaning as quickly as possible.

We thank everyone for their patience and apologise for the inconvenience

The Parent and Family Support Service create the Families Matter magazine. It shares news and information to support local families. It comes out three times a year, in line with the school terms.

The service also publishes a monthly Families Matter e-bulletin to share bitesize information. It gives parents advice and details on how to join our networks, support groups or parenting sessions. 

The most recent editions of both the magazine and the e-bulletin are on this page.
